What is

As the name implies, Alternate Investment Funds offer an alternate to traditional investment avenues such as direct equity, mutual funds, and bonds to HNIs and UHNIs seeking exclusive investment opportunities for better returns. Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) represent a sophisticated class of pooled investment vehicles, attracting institutional and high-net-worth investors with a minimum ticket size of Rs.1 crore. AIFs are regulated by SEBI (Alternative Investment Funds) Regulations of 2012 and are usually structured as corporations, Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs), trusts, etc. AIFs combine the operational ease of Mutual Funds and provide flexibility similar to that of PMS to deliver higher returns through defined investment strategies.

AIFs typically target alternative asset classes like venture capital, private equity, hedge funds, infrastructure funds, etc and are driven by well-defined investment objectives. AIFs are classified into multiple categories namely - Category I, II, III; based on the investment opportunities they are allowed to participate in.

AIF Categories
to know

Angel Funds, a part of this category, pool investments from high net worth individuals and entities with specific experience and qualifications.
  • Category II-Includes debt funds and private equity funds, offering a defensive investment option with diversified portfolios managed by experienced fund managers to reduce investors' risk profiles. Debt funds in this category invest in debt or debt securities of listed or unlisted companies.
